http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-25144465 China has declared a section of sea (long disputed) as subject to its air traffic control as some sort of 'emergency' safety measure. This seems to me a deliberate attempt to ramp up pressure on an outgoing US president before local self-defence initiatives between countries like Japan and Vietnam can prove resistant to China in their own right. The whole thing feels like something out of the 1970s. I've got a bad feeling about this. And not just because it reminds me of those terrifyingly itchy trousers.
